Palin’s tortured logic on Planned Parenthood and Kermit Gosnel

April 28, 2013 · Leave a Comment

Sarah Palin continue to set new lows in reasoned discourse. Most recently she has attempted to tie Planned Parenthood and President Obama to the atrocities committed by illegal abortion provider Kermit Gosnell.

Palin wrote on her Facebook page:

“Considering the role Planned Parenthood has played in looking the other way while the mass murdering abortion doctor Gosnell butchered babies born alive from his horrific infanticide procedures and abused his women patients, it’s perhaps not surprising that this same president sees nothing wrong with allowing his name to be so openly associated with this organization.”

Once again Palin gets it entirely wrong.  Gosnell operated a house of horrors, conducting illegal, unsanitary late term abortions.  When women who came to Planned Parenthood with tales of  Gosnell they encouraged them to file official complaints with the Department of Health.

Let’s be clear – Gosnell had a horrific and unsafe operation, and now rightly stands accused of first degree murder, among other things, and could face the death penalty.

But if anyone other than Gosnell himself bears responsibility for that house of horrors, it is the very movement that has attempted to restrict access to safe, early, low cost abortions – not Planned Parenthood.  It was desperate, poor women who sought out Gosnell.  But I guess Sarah Palin would rather try to score political points in the face of a crime, and smear those with whom she disagrees by innuendo for horrific acts they had nothing to do with.

Wouldn’t we all be better off if Sarah took her ignorance back to small town Alaska and, oh, I don’t know, tried actually educating her mind rather than desperately trying to remain relevant and spewing her own brew of venom, misinformation and tortured logic long after her time on the world stage has come and gone?
